Why Mainstream Bachelorette Parties are Toxic

Mainstream bachelor and bachelorette parties are disgusting and contradictory to the values of a healthy marriage. By this point, we’ve probably all heard a horror story of someone who took it one, two, or ten steps too far at a bachelor or bachelorette party. Although both parties share overlapping themes and this essay is really meant to address issues with the mainstream versions of both, we’ll stick with the term “bachelorette parties” for the sake of simplicity.


What makes bachelorette parties different from other parties? First off, it’s meant to be a pre-marriage celebration between the bride and her closest friends. That seems innocent enough, but given millennial and gen-z’s relationship with hookup culture, commitment issues, and overall complicated history with relationships, all of which I discussed in my last essay, it’s no surprise that this bleeds over into pre-nuptial celebrations as well.

Toxic Marketing

“Having fun” at your bachelor or bachelorette party has become synonymous with giving soon-to-be brides and grooms a “free pass” for the night – or, these days, for several nights. What was once a standard, one-night excursion is now, more typically, a two, three, or four day-long bender involving strippers, getting sloppy drunk, going back to strangers’ airbnbs, and at least one member of the bridal party having a blackout. If you don’t have a brutal hangover at least one of the mornings, you didn’t party hard enough.



Bachelorette parties in particular are marketed to be raunchy affairs in terms of decor as well. Penis imagery everywhere, photo wall signs that say things like “Last Fling Before the Ring” and “Same Penis Forever.” I don’t think I have to explain the contradictory implications of a pre-marriage celebration consisting of these themes.


An important element to note is that mainstream bachelorette (and bachelor) parties not only encourage crude behavior, but they condition us to associate “fun” with sexual promiscuity. They attempt, and often succeed in giving men and women “an excuse” to do “single” things for the duration of the party.


Even stranger, fiancés are encouraged not to speak to each other during these “celebrations,” even if the event is several days long. This was something I was not even aware of until my own bachelorette party, which lasted two nights. I called my fiancé the second night to check in. He seemed surprised to hear from me. I didn’t think anything of it at first, assuming he would think I might be too busy to call, but after our conversation, one of my bridesmaids asked who was on the phone. When I told her who it was she seemed surprised as well. “But it’s your bachelorette party,” She said. At this point, I couldn’t help but wonder to what extent this is the norm. Such secrecy and lack of communication would surely cultivate jealousy or, at the very least, worry and unease in a partner, leaving one wondering what the other is doing. We’ve all seen the movies and heard a story or two.


Finally, the mainstream versions of bachelor and bachelorette parties demean marriage into the simple understanding that, sadly, you can only have sex with one person for the rest of your life. So what is the bachelorette party for? To “have fun” while you still can and “enjoy being single,” because dating and engagement suddenly mean nothing as far as relationship status.


Peer Pressure: “It’s not a real bachelorette party.”

When the time came to start planning my own bachelorette party, my maid of honor had a lot of ideas. Penis decor, Magic Mike, raunchy signs, all the cliche things. I told her I was getting married so strip clubs were out of the question. At first she didn’t seem to understand what I meant, insisting it would be fine to “Just look, not touch.” I flat out told her that I didn’t want any of those things and began brainstorming my own ideas.


When I told my fiance about my maid of honor’s suggestions, he hesitated before telling me he didn’t really care. But I knew he did care. He cared in the same way I would care if he went to strip clubs with the guys, and it hurt to think he felt like he had to act indifferent. At the end of the day, it isn’t about trusting your partner or not trusting them. It’s about respect. If you respect the person you’re going to marry, you don’t go to strip clubs, you don’t seek sexual satisfaction from someone else, visual or physical – it’s that simple.


The party took place at my house. The first night was a house party where everyone could meet and get to know each other over some drinks and appetizers before hanging out in the backyard in the hottub and around the fire pit. The second day the girls all tried on bridesmaids dresses and picked out their individual cuts. We went to brunch and an aerial silks class before heading back to the house to get ready for Halloween Haunt at King’s Island. We all got fast passes so we were able to pass long lines of people on the way to the biggest, fastest roller coasters.


I found out later that my maid of honor thought the party “wasn’t even a real bachelorette party.” Having spent weeks in advance planning the entire weekend myself, I could have easily been hurt by such a comment; but in truth, it was a compliment. If acting like a sad single person for the weekend to celebrate being “tied down forever” is the criteria for being a “real” bachelorette party, I’ll gladly pass. By the way, the party was a blast.

An ongoing, outside example of peer pressure surrounding weddings, specifically bachelorette parties, is the collection of conversations sparring from the subreddit: AmIThe Asshole (AITA). Reddit users simply type out personal stories, asking the void of the internet whether they are being reasonable or not. One feed in particular is titled: AITA for kicking my MOH out of my wedding party because she was being a buzz kill? This Reddit post was written in August of this year by a bride whose best friend and Maid of Honor, Kathy, was helping her plan her bachelorette party weekend. Kathy was a professional wedding planner and arranged the airbnbs and activities for the girls. Before the weekend started, Kathy told the bride that she had arranged for everything, but there were some activities that she felt uncomfortable participating in. When the bride asked her for a specific answer as to why, Kathy responded:


“Look, you’ve made some requests for your bachelorette party and I respect everything you want to do but there are some things there that are off limits for me and some of the stuff such as the strippers I’ve booked for you and some other activities are crossing boundaries regarding me and my own fiancé’s relationship. So I made sure to arrange everything perfectly just how you and the girls wanted it to be but sadly it’s not something I want to be involved in. I hope you have the greatest fun.”


The bride was upset by this, and when Kathy later mentioned not wanting to drink alcohol before the wedding because she didn’t want to get sick, the bride snapped. Her Reddit post continues, “I got very disappointed and at that moment I straight up told her I don’t want her as a MOH if all she’s going to do is be a buzzkill about everything regarding my wedding… The rest of my bridesmaids now also believe that I took it too far… not drinking alcohol is not something that would ruin my wedding and I’m just overreacting. AITA?” Yes, Final_Cream6177. Yes you are.


On the other hand, the peer pressure-induced excuse, “It was a surprise, I had no idea,” is one I’ve heard a lot from brides and grooms in relation to their parties as well.. Being “coerced” into going to a strip club because your “friends planned” it without telling you is not an excuse, but if it were it would be the weakest one I’ve ever heard. Agreeing to go is a decision. Giving in to peer pressure is an active decision and makes you just as guilty as if you planned it yourself. You are a participant. Say what you will about not trying to cause a scene or just trying to keep the peace and make everyone happy, but if there is a moment when you are more than justified to make a scene, removing yourself from a compromising situation out of respect for your partner would take the cake.

Growing up I learned about the concept “guilty by association.” If you hang out with four other people who are always using drugs, you become the fifth involved party. If you hang out with five other people who go out and get drunk every weekend because they have nothing to look forward to, you become the fifth participant. The same concept applies here. If you aren’t surrounding yourself with people who make you better, you get worse. If you surround yourself with people who couldn’t care less about the integrity of your relationship, you’ll eventually care less as well. If those are the kinds of friends you surround yourself with, maybe it’s time to find some new ones – if not for yourself then for the sake of your marriage.


It can be hard to go against the grain sometimes. It’s so much easier just to go with the flow and do what everyone else is doing. It’s hard to fall out of touch with friends when they’ve plateaued and you’re still trying to grow as a person. But if I’ve learned anything from life so far, it’s that the sooner you make the hard decision to identify and let go of people and activities that don’t build you up, the happier and more meaningful your relationships will be moving

Dirty bomb false flag event to IGNITE World War with Russia, but Europe and USA don't have enough functioning INDUSTRY to win a war

Image: Dirty bomb false flag event to IGNITE World War with Russia, but Europe and USA don’t have enough functioning INDUSTRY to win a war

(Natural News) A dirty bomb has reportedly been planted in Ukraine and is about to be donated by Ukrainian forces in order to blame Russia and justify a USA / NATO escalation into World War III. That’s the warning from Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who has reportedly been making a series of calls to leaders of western nations to warn them of this false flag plot. As Mac Slavo writes from SHTFplan.com:

In calls to Western leaders that included the United States, Britain, France, and Turkey, Russia’s defense minister said Ukraine is plotting a false flag “dirty bomb” attack. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has started warning that Ukrainian forces are preparing a “provocation” with a radioactive device.

Once this radiological attack is initiated, it would of course provide a narrative to the dishonest western press to call for an escalated NATO attack on Russia. Knowing this attack is coming, Russia would be forced into a position of initiating a first strike pre-emptive retaliation, resulting in Russia potentially nuking major cities across the U.S. and Europe. This appears to be the goal of the Barack Obama / Susan Rice / Victoria Nuland / Joe Biden criminal cabal, which clearly wants to escalate this conflict into a global nuclear war so that America is destroyed, covering their tracks for decades of financial looting, kickbacks, bribery, election rigging and other forms of corruption.

Russia knows all this and doesn’t want this to escalate into a global nuclear conflict. That’s why they are sounding the alarm.


But western nations aren’t listening. Also from SHTFplan, “Britain has also strongly rejected the claims from Moscow.”

From CNBC.com:

“The Defense Secretary refuted these claims and cautioned that such allegations should not be used as a pretext for greater escalation,” the ministry said.

Thus, Britain is claiming that when Russia is trying to de-escalate the situation by warning about a false flag dirty bomb, that warning is itself an escalation. France seems to recognize the danger in all this, as reported by CNBC:

The French Ministry of the Armed Forces said that Shoigu told his counterpart, Sebastien Lecornu, that the situation in Ukraine was rapidly worsening and “trending towards uncontrollable escalation.”

Thus, Russia finds itself trapped in a western-engineered escalation toward global thermonuclear war.

The USA and Western Europe have no real industrial capability to wage a war with Russia

As I point out in today’s Situation Update podcast below, if the USA and Western Europe go to war with Russia, they will lose that war. Why? Because of deindustrialization.

The vast majority of metals smelting operations in Europe have already been shut down due to high energy prices. Aluminum operations are down more than 70%, and just this weekend, the largest steel manufacturer in the world — ArcelorMittal in Germany — is warning it will have to shut down for the same reason.

From SlayNews.com:

Reiner Blaschek, the CEO of ArcelorMittal Germany, warns that the German wing of the company can no longer compete due to soaring energy costs… Gas and electricity prices, which have soared in recent months due to sanctions and Russia’s decision to cut gas flows, have left many industrial companies with input costs too high to remain profitable.

Without steel, you cannot manufacture military equipment. Not even artillery rounds.

No steel = no capacity to fight war, in other words.

The United States has offshored most of its own steel manufacturing to other countries, leaving very little domestic production capability. As a result, even if the U.S. has funding to produce more military equipment, it still depends on steel and rare earth minerals from China and other countries. The F-35 production run, notoriously, was recently shut down by the Pentagon due to dependence on a rare earth mineral from China.

Furthermore, the culture of America has been transformed into an entitlement “snowflakian” work ethic, where most younger Americans don’t have any real work ethic and refuse to work in weapons factories altogether. Labor shortages mean that U.S. based weapons manufacturers can’t even find the personnel to keep their factories running.

Recently, when Joe Biden promised more HIMARS artillery systems to Ukraine, very few people realized that those HIMARS systems have to be manufactured from scratch and won’t be delivered until 2025 at the earliest.

Thus, Joe Biden is promising weapons that don’t exist, and pretending that printing money will somehow automatically translate into weapon systems magically appearing out of thin air. But reality doesn’t work that way. You actually need steel and labor and energy to produce weapons.

Europe has no affordable energy due to the economic sanctions against Russia and the destruction of the Nord Stream pipeline by U.S. forces. Thus, Europe has near-zero capacity to manufacture weapons of war. And the U.S. has no reliable labor supply, nor a sufficient weapons manufacturing infrastructure to fight a real war with Russia. With over one million artillery rounds already shipped to Ukraine so far this year, America’s own munitions stockpiles are red-lining. There’s almost nothing left, and there are no factories churning out a supply that would be sufficient to fight a world war.

Meanwhile, Russia has its own domestic supply chain, lots of steel and cheap energy galore

While Europe and the USA can barely manufacture weapons, ammunition or aircraft, Russia has all the natural resources necessary to wage an industrial supply chain of tanks, aircraft, diesel fuel, ammunition, rockets, ICBMs, nuclear warheads and everything else you might imagine. Russia has its own domestic supply chain to produce iron ore and steel, for example, and it has all the cheap energy to do so in an economical fashion that’s achieved at a fraction of the production cost of western nations.

Russia, in other words, can continue to build tanks, artillery, aircraft, rockets, nuclear warheads, battle gear, firearms, self-propelled guns and everything else needed to wage a kinetic war, and they can fund it all with record revenues from sales of oil, fertilizer, natural gas, diesel fuel, aluminum, copper, gold, wheat and other communities, all readily purchased by countries like China, India, Turkey, Iran and many more. Russia is raking in record profits due to the (failed) economic sanctions of the West, meaning Russia now has both excess revenues and its own domestic industrial supply chain to keep building weapons of war.

The entire British Army likely won’t last two weeks in a war with Russia. And the 101st Airborne — as much as the men and women in uniform are loyal and courageous — just isn’t equipped with the heavy gear required to fight and win a land war with Russia. You can’t beat Russia in a land war by using light infantry.

Furthermore, Pentagon standards have been watered down to appease the “woke” crowd, and virtually none of the younger soldiers in the 101st have ever seen actual combat. Even those who served in Afghanistan (in other branches or divisions) have never experienced combat when you don’t have air superiority.

On top of that, the Screaming Eagles (the 101st) are only at 60% strength due to difficulty in recruiting new soldiers. The Airborne Division isn’t even at the strength it was in Desert Storm, and the Iraqis didn’t have Russia’s artillery, tanks, Iskanders or air defense systems.

Thus, it seems likely that the 101st Airborne, should it be sent to engage Russia in a ground war in Ukraine, will be soundly defeated by veteran Russian forces that are now battle-hardened and extremely well equipped due to Russia’s geographical proximity, rail systems, industrial base and anti-air defense systems (S-400, S-500). If the 101st is thrust into a ground war with Russia, America should prepare to see a steady stream of flag-draped coffins arriving on military bases as casualties mount up. No doubt the western press will censor any images of such coffins and try to pretend that soldiers somehow aren’t dying in Ukraine, just as they are currently pretending nobody is dying from vaccines (even as they drop dead by the day).

Furthermore, NATO has no effective air defenses against Russia’s missiles or drones. Russia’s hypersonic missiles (and even subsonic missiles) simply cannot be stopped by NATO defenses, a fact that should be obvious from all the successful missile strikes across Ukraine this year.

The bottom line? If there’s anyone who is desperate enough to use nukes in this war, it’s NATO or the USA for the simple reason that they don’t have any other option. That’s probably why NATO forces are attempting to run a dirty bomb false flag and push this war into the nuclear realm as quickly as possible.

The problem, of course, is that billions of people could die from the resulting nuclear apocalypse, famine and collapse.

Perhaps that’s exactly what they want.

Hollywood talent agency CAA cuts ties with Kanye West after antisemitic tirade

LA Times | Oct. 24, 2022

CAA, the prominent Hollywood talent agency, has stopped representing Ye amid a growing call to boycott the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.

The agency ended its relationship with Ye this month following his recent antisemitic outbursts in various interviews, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who was not authorized to speak publicly.

CAA is the latest business to end its relationship with the rapper over his remarks. Other leading entertainment industry figures including Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel called on all companies that work with the musician to cut ties with him after he tweeted he wanted to go “death con 3″ on Jewish people.


Sign Petition: The Quebec College of Physicians Must Not Be Allowed to Murder Infants

The Quebec College of Physicians believes Canada’s assisted suicide program, Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), can and should be used on infants born with ‘severe malformations’.

This is nothing short of infanticide.

In a recent press release, Dr. Louis Roy from the Quebec College of Physicians claimed that MAiD could be appropriate for babies born with ‘grave and severe syndromes’ for which their ‘prospective of survival is null, so to speak.’

No matter how you spin it, an infant cannot consent to their own death – to decide for them and give a lethal dose is murder.
